1st Steamboat Trip - 1/16-17 (solo)

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

So I will be flying into steamboat for the 1st time this Thursday night and skiing for a couple days. This is my first time there so pretty excited, but it's a solo trip for me.

 

Doing a private lesson on Friday afternoon, but if anyone is looking for a ski buddy on Saturday or has some "can't miss" take-out or delivery food recommendations, let me know!


I am only a level 4/5 skier, so no expert btw... wouldn't be able to keep up with a lot of you guys. Finndog has me very excited for the town and has already filled me in on a lot of the key info!

 

Also, if anyone has any other tips for a solo trip, please share. Not a tree skier obviously, so will be staying far clear of that for safety reasons, but anything else to note?

I would sign up for some am half day group lessons. You can meet some folks of similar ability, get some instruction, learn the mountain, and perhaps ski with those you get along with in the afternoon. Who knows, you may end up meeting some dinner/drinks companions. Have a great time!!!

You asked for take out or delivery options. 

 

My tip is to not do that just because you are solo! (not saying that is the reason). 

 

I know some people that cannot imagine eating alone in a restaurant. I guess its no big deal to me because ive been traveling for work for many years. 

 

For solo travelers, anywhere. I recommend eating at the bar. Great way to meet people.

you are staying on the mountain right?  Walk over to One steamboat and eat at the bar at The flying pig (its what I call it ) very good food there and tv's to watch sport.   Also go eat at Slopeside, grab a pizza at the bar and a nice beer, Paramount is really good too.  If you have a shuttle by all means go downtown. Carls is a great place, and you can watch sports on the many TV's either at a table or at the bar.  Like Curry?  Try Curry by 11th; small restaurant and  bar, owned by really nice Kiwi family.  Good local spot with tv's  Its kind of a Rugby hangout.  .  

 

Would you rather do Take out?   If so, Try the Drunkin Onion at the wildhorse plaza. http://drunkenonion.com/  they feature gourmet take out.  Really good place.  

 

Cheers

Just to clarify for the OP...youre talking about the Truffle Pig right? That has been our Apre' choice the last few years. Mainly because its convenient to the ski school. So we can get our kid, and just walk right upstairs. And its easy to get a seat. I'd like to go some where different, some days, but its just easy and close.

YEAH, the flying pig....  :D  Its a great place, gets overlooked.  Used to have one of the very best Bacon cheeseburgers anywhere.   Good beers on tap. I wish they would open during the summer, it used to be  a great place to sit on the deck and watch the sunsets reflecting light on the mountain (alpen glow).  You could get good food (flat bread pizza's, muscles) and good wine.

Awesome help everyone, thank you. Can't wait to fly out in a few hours and get out there. Yes, staying at the Torian Plum.

 

Will definitely do the bar-eating and give it a shot and the truffle pig sounds like a good choice.

if you want upscale, go to Cafe' Diva located in Torain Plum Plaza. Fantastic food and wines and you can also sit at their bar.  Can't be any more convenient.
